33-year-old Hollie Winnett is accused of killing 34-year-old Ryan Franklin, who was riding his bike when he was hit by her jeep back in May.

Winnett told police she fell asleep while driving and woke up after she hit something. She says she got out to check things but didn't see anything and drove away. Police say they found the badly damaged Jeep about 10 miles away from the scene.

Winnett faces felony charges of vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of a fatal crash. She is scheduled to go on trial in January.
